Including costs of programs can help your evaluation get funded, read, and used. 

Evaluating the monetary outcomes (aka “benefits”) of programs, such as reduced client use of health services and increased client productivity and income, can further influence decision-makers. Incorporating consumer, provider, and funder costs into cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, and cost-utility analyses provides the foundation for calculating cost per Quality-Adjusted Life Year Gained as well as Social Return On Investment (SROI) estimates. This digital workshop will show you what your cost-inclusive evaluation can be and how it can elevate your evaluation. Together, we will review examples from real evaluations of substance abuse prevention and treatment programs, and health as well as mental health services so you can gain real-word understanding of the benefits of cost-benefit analyses.
